The Doctor is meanwhile captured by Prince Reynart's men Zadek and Farrah and taken to his hunting lodge, where he is forced to repair an android double of the Prince to act as a decoy for potential assassins.

KTEH 54 San Jose, CA
Sat 11PM PDT The Androids of Tara all 4 eps (Sun)
Everyone but the TARDIS gets a chance to flex their acting muscles in this fun story. Take a basic plot - evil uncle tries to keep rightful ruler from becoming king. Add androids and a backwards attitude towards technology. Give it a pinch of good dialogue and great casting. Stir for 4 episodes until done.
